“Instead of giving roads the names of leaders and celebrities. if we give the contractor’s name…”

A meme about road naming is:

“One Simple Suggestion!
Instead Of Giving Roads The Names Of Leaders
And Celebrities, If We Give Names Of
Contractor Who Built It With His Address
And Number, I think The Quality Of Roads Will
Improve Immediately.”


“I propose we name roads the names of the contractors who built them with their phone numbers. Quality of roads will improve effectively” was posted on Twitter by Lister Mackenzie on August 3, 2017. “Instead of giving roads the names of leaders, if we give the name of the contractor who built it with his address and phone number, the quality of Kenyan roads will improve immediately” was posted on Twitter by Kenyan Memes on March 31, 2018. “1Suggestion: ​Instead of giving roads the names of leaders and celebrities,if we give the name of the contractor who built it with his address and number, I think the quality of roads will improve immediately​” was posted on Twitter by AHMED HUSSAIN on September 19, 2019.

This sounds a bit tongue-in-cheek but it does make sense. We don’t have to name the road after the contractor but we certainly could add ‘Built by…’ in the road sign. There are many industries—including automobiles—where the product states ‘Made with pride by…(team/individual)’

Like in #Nagaland each roads undertaken by any contractor will have to put name of the assigned incharge of the road.
